Dear Diego,

Thanks for your solution. Even if it isn't the most cleanest solution, I 
don't really care. But I think the most simplest solution would be to 
obtain the same energy balance that in the file energy_zone.bal, with 
direct outputs (see the second part of my email). I found the equivalent 
output of QSOLGAIN : this is QTSABS (NTYPE75, see volume 6, part 2, page 
98), but I don't know how to obtain the equivalent output (or combination 
of outputs) of QTRANS. Do you have an idea ?

Kind Regards,
